Singer-songwriters Dave McGraw and Mandy Fer chat with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith about their new album MARITIME, their national and international tour, living in a cabin on an island in Washington State, kayaking with Orcas, and more. Drawing on the nature around them, McGraw and Fer recorded MARITIME in their cabin on an island nestled between Seattle, WA and Victoria, British Columbia. Instead of leaving to record in a bustling city, McGraw and Fer decided to stay isolated at their seaside home, calling on kindred musicians and their producer to share in the experience.
McGraw and Fer met in Flagstaff, Arizona in 2010 before relocating to the Pacific Northwest in 2012. McGraw spent a decade as a wildlife biologist, studying endangered birds in remote locales from the deserts of Mexico and the Grand Canyon to the mountainous rain forests of Washington. Fer's musical pulse led her to Spain, where she studied music, language and local culture.
This interview originally aired on April 20, 2015 on Big Blend Radio's Nature Connection show, which broadcasted live from Ridgemark Golf & Country Club in Hollister, California.
Fans of wrestling in the Maritime provinces of Canada will remember Gair Maxwell as the long-time host and play-by-play man for Atlantic Grand Prix Wrestling. Always in his trademark tuxedo with red bowtie, Maxwell verbally tied together the action in the ring during the golden era of Maritime Wrestling having called the matches of such superstars as Leo Burke, No Class Bobby Bass, Killer Karl Krupp, The Cuban Assassin, Rotten Ron Starr and countless others.
Always entertaining and engaging, Gair was always quick-witted on the microphone, which came in handy when he was dealing with the likes of mouthpieces Bass & Brown sitting beside him weekly for commentary. Never one to shy away from the tongue-in-cheek fun the heels would poke at him, Gair was beloved by Maritime wrestling fans and was the soundtrack to many Saturday afternoon and evenings when AGPW would air on ATV.
These days, Gair Maxwell is a very successful motivational speaker and author. He has delivered over 1,000 keynotes,
seminars and workshops all over North America to many different audiences. He's spoken at TedTalks in Moncton. Gair's book, Nuts, Bolt & a Few Loose Screws is formatted as a composition of essays and short stories that connect the dots when it comes to building brands that stick.
It is indeed an honor and a privlege for Jeff & Bobby to welcome Mr. Gair Maxwell, the voice of Maritime Wrestling to Pure Class on our next show.
Please join us for what is sure to be an unforgettable show with the voice we all know and love.
On this edition of History Today, host Paul Angel, the managing editor of The Barnes Review history magazine, will be discussing the worst maritime disaster in American history—yet one very few people know about. Even more interesting, the blame for this shocking loss of life—more than were lost on the Titanic—can be squarely laid at the feet of Abraham Lincoln. Find out more about the Sultana disaster and how a number of tragic factors converged to take the lives of nearly 1,700 Union prisoners of war and innocent civilians on the Mississippi River at the close of the Civil War.
We will also be wrapping up our discussion of the Gobekli Tepe temple site in Anatolia—the discovery of which has literally doubled the history of man and thrown the "Semito-centric" historical establishment into a tizzy.
With Paul will be his partner in historical crime, Dave Gahary, the host of “Who’s the Bad Guy?”
Please join us and take a politically incorrect tour through history from a non-mainstream perspective.
Tonight is the show Maritime wrestling fans have been waiting for! It's been many months of trying to line up schedules and to make this happen.....and tonight...IT HAPPENS!
We are thrilled to welcome our very special guest tonight...the Living Legend of Maritime wrestling...Mr. LEO BURKE!
Over the course of his career, Leo held 46 wrestling championships. Several of his title victories came as part of a tag team with his brothers, three of whom were also professional wrestlers. He had long-term storyline feuds with such wrestlers as Cuban Assassin and Bret Hart, both of whom he later reconciled with and joined forces with to hold tag team championships. Since his retirement in 1992, he has also trained many wrestlers for both World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Leo has been honored by both the Cauliflower Alley Club, a fraternal organization of professional wrestlers, and Stampede Wrestling, who inducted him into their hall of fame.
Tonight, it is our honor and indeed our privelege to welcome Mr. Leo Burke to
The past six months has seen a rapid rise in the level of naval and maritime activity across the globe. China, Russia, and Iran have expanded their air and naval activity into disputed areas with their neighbors, raising tensions and concerns around the world. Recently, the invasions of Crimea, Ukraine, and Yemen have all increased the levels of naval activity in the Baltic and Black Seas, as well as the Gulf of Aden, Straits of Hormuz, and Persian Gulf. In addition, out in the Pacific, tensions are rising between China and North Korea, and their neighbors around the Rim of the Pacific region. Active humanitarian crises are dominating the Mediterranean between Libya and Italy, along with Malaysia, Indonesia, and other areas of the Southwest Pacific. In addition, add in a major construction boom in naval vessels of all types, and maritime tensions are the highest they have been since the end of the Cold War.
